Roy Moore allegations: Another woman accuses Republican candidate of assault

McConnell Calls for Roy Moore to Drop Out of Senate Race

Two Republican lawmakers from IL have called on U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama to end his campaign in the wake of allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old girl.

"I call on Moore to step aside and remove himself as a distraction to Senate and House members so that they may continue focusing on serving the people in their states", he added. "I would probably have taken what Mr. Moore did to me to my grave, had it not been for the courage of four other women", she said. She says Moore groped her, touched her breasts and locked the door to keep her inside his auto. Moore has denied the allegations in the report. "I think he did cocaine". She said he squeezed her neck while trying to push her head toward his crotch and that he tried to pull her shirt off.

Moore told the political rally that "there are groups that don't want me in the United States Senate", naming the Democratic Party and establishment Republican officials in Washington. I tried fighting him off while yelling at him to stop.

She accused him of touching her breasts and locking the door to keep her inside his auto. But Moore could well ignore it since he has routinely ridiculed McConnell's performance as the Senate Republican leader and rebuffed calls from other prominent Republicans to drop out of the race.

Speaking at a press conference in Louisville about tax reform, McConnell was asked if he believed Moore's accusers. It said Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Monday that "I believe the women" and Moore should leave the race, according to a video from Spectrum News.

Other national Republicans also have backed away from Moore.


The Kentucky Republican said last week after the initial report from the Washington Post broke that if the allegations were true, then Moore should step aside.

He declined to say if that someone would be Luther Strange, who was appointed to the seat earlier this year but lost the GOP primary to Moore.

"Doug's opponent, Roy Moore, is an extremist with a record of putting political ideology above the rule of law", Donnelly wrote in a weekend email soliciting contributions for Democrat Doug Jones.

He said, "I'm counting on you to stand with me at this critical moment by chipping in a donation to help me bust through the vicious lies and attacks and get the truth out to as many voters as possible before December 12".

In the past few months, President Trump has had a tumultuous relationship with Sessions, due in no small part to his frustration with the attorney general's recusal from the investigations into Russia's 2016 election interference.

But Moore has remained defiant.
